Brazilian Grilled Steak with Artichoke Salsa

This wonderful recipe is from Sook on My Fabulous Recipes Blog. I only changed it slightly; as noted in brackets.

It really IS fabulous, too!

Brazilian Grilled Flank Steak w/ Artichoke Salsa

1 flank steak [I used sirloin, use what cut you like]
2 tablespoons oil
6 garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, seeded and very finely chopped
Steak seasoning [such as Montreal Steak Seasoning]

For the Salsa:

4 fresh tomatoes, seeded and diced [I used cherry tomatoes, quartered or halved]
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
2 to 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup jarred artichoke hearts, diced [I used canned]
1 to 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt


Rub the all over with olive oil. Rub the steak with minced garlic and jalapeno and season it with steak seasoning. Place it in a resealable plastic food bag or in a flat glass container] seal well. Refrigerate it for at least 4 hours or overnight.

For the Salsa:

Place all salsa ingredients in a medium sized bowl and toss gently to mix well. Set aside.

On a hot grill, preferably outdoor grill (you can use indoor grill if that is more convenient for you), grill the flank steak until the meat is cooked the way you like it.

Slice the meat thinly to serve. Serve with salsa on the side or on top of the meat.

My notes: This also makes a wonderful burrito when wrapped in a warm flour tortilla, or as a sandwich on a split, toasted baguette. SO good!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
